If you are a fond reader of this blog, it would be public knowledge that I, Allyza Kim *** dream of going to Paris.
I am actually saving up for it. So far I’ve got 100 Php.
In my dreams I have seen Paris twice. But that is never enough, is it?
Recently, I have read Helen Keller’s essay “If I had three days to see” and she so profoundly describe what she would do if she had three days of sight.
In my own version, I would describe the things I would do, if I had three days to see Paris.
Breakfast at the Terrace of Le Dôme. A freshly brewed coffee, a baguette tartine, jam and three delicious mini pastries: croissant, pain au chocolat and pain au raison to start my busy day.
Visit the Musee du Louvre and stare at Da Vinci’s Mona Lisa for a considerable period of time
Step outside and stare at the Pyramid de Louvre for at least an hour
Walk to the side and sit by the river Seine which is in view of the Eiffel and watch people pass by.
Visit a fountain, throw a peso coin and make a wish.
Find a baker and a local bakeshop to teach me how to bake croissants.
Buy a rose
Bring that rose to dinner in Chez Marie
Ladurée-Champs-Elysées, a tea salon, for a sit-down continental breakfast.
